What is a Multi Panel Sign?

A multi-panel metal sign consists of at least two layers of metal panels. It’s great to use for a hanging sign in which areas cut would be hard to see.  Also, if there is a busy background and cut out section would be busy instead of easily identifiable.

It is a great sign option that can be used in both commercial and residential settings. 


An analogy you can picture is a jigsaw puzzle.  The front panel is the puzzle pieces.  The back panel is the mat the pieces are sitting on.

  • Puzzle Structure(Front Panel): Imagine the front panel of the sign as a jigsaw puzzle. This panel, like a puzzle, has pieces (sections of the metal) that fit together to form the overall design of the sign.
  • Missing Pieces (Reveals back panel): In our analogy, some pieces of this puzzle are intentionally missing. These absent pieces are akin to the cutouts in the metal sign. They create spaces or gaps in the overall design.




Features of a Multi Panel Sign

Custom metal signs utilizing multi-panel designs offer enhanced depth and color visibility, making them a standout choice for businesses and public displays. Here are three key features of these signs:

Enhanced Depth Perception:

  • The multi-panel design in custom metal signs creates a unique depth effect. By layering multiple panels at different depths, these signs offer a three-dimensional appearance, adding visual interest and sophistication to the signage.
  • This depth can be further accentuated with strategic lighting or shadows, making the sign more dynamic and eye-catching.

Superior Color Visibility and Vibrancy:

  • The use of multiple panels allows for a more nuanced and vibrant color display. Each panel can be treated or painted separately, resulting in richer, more varied color schemes that stand out even from a distance.
  • The metal surface is ideal for high-quality, durable finishes, ensuring that the colors remain bright and resistant to fading over time, even under exposure to sunlight and weather.

Customizable and Creative Design Potential:

  • Multi-panel metal signs offer extensive customization options. Panels can be cut into various shapes and sizes, allowing for creative and unique sign designs that can closely align with a brand’s identity or the intended aesthetic.
  • The ability to mix and match different panel styles, textures, and finishes provides a vast range of design possibilities. This means a business can have a truly unique sign that differentiates it from competitors.

Uses of Multi Panel signs

They can display the business name, logo, contact information, and other important details. These signs are particularly effective for storefronts, office buildings, and industrial facilities.

  4. Wayfinding Signs: In large complexes like malls, campuses, or industrial parks, metal signs can serve as wayfinding tools, helping people navigate through complex environments efficiently.

  5. Decorative Signs: Single panel metal signs can also be used for decorative purposes. They can display artwork, quotes, or custom designs to enhance the aesthetics of homes, gardens, or public spaces.
